Perrier Hong Kong Open organisers yesterday scotched fears John Daly would not turn up for next week's tournament, insisting the wild man of golf was '100 per cent certain' to play at Fan Ling. Steve Feuerstein, of Open promoter Sports International, said 'barring any catastrophe' Daly would arrive in Hong Kong on Tuesday. 'He's coming, he'll be here, there's no doubt about it all. He's 100 per cent,' a bullish Feuerstein said yesterday. Feuerstein had initially adopted a cautious stance towards Daly's appearance in Hong Kong when the American was initially confirmed for the tournament. Daly's participation was viewed as touch-and-go by promoters only too aware of the self-confessed alcoholic's personal problems. In August, Daly had to be helped from the course in tears after suffering an attack of the shakes at a tournament in Canada. But yesterday Feuerstein moved to stamp out doubts about Daly's participation. 'We've been in contact with his agent every day and barring any catastrophe he'll be here,' said Feuerstein, a former schoolmate of Daly's agent John Mascatello. 'I also think it's significant that his caddy will be coming as well . . . that is normally an indication that a golfer is going to take an event seriously,' Feuerstein added. Feuerstein was speaking at a press conference to honour Taiwanese golfer Lu Liang-huan, the winner of the first Hong Kong Open held in 1959. Lu was presented with the Reunification Achievement Award for his 'trailblazing' work in developing the sport in the region.
